Hit and miss showers tonight with cold air moving in

Weather

With the passage of the cold front behind us, our severe weather threat comes to an end. This isn’t to say we still can’t see a few gusty storms and showers out there which could lead to some downed trees and power outages. We’ve already had a temperature drop 20 degrees from our daytime high and that drop continues into the overnight with lows in the mid 40. Some mountain counties could see the mid to upper 30s by Thursday morning.

Thursday morning will be a wake-up call. Morning lows will tank back into the 40s and the upper 30s in the highest elevations. Highs during the afternoon as our front pull away will struggle into the upper 60s. Leftover showers will be likely through the morning hours, they will slowly taper off during the rest of the day as clouds break up.

Friday it more feels more like mid-fall than the third day of fall. Highs in the mid-60s and winds out of the ENE will definitely give us a nice crisp fall day. The sun will make a bit of a difference but now that it is getting lower in the sky more and more each day it is quickly losing its effectiveness.

Saturday, as another upper-level system passes to our north we run the risk of an isolated shower through the afternoon and overnight into Sunday. This will also bring in a touch more cloud cover than the previous day but some sun is still expected. Highs in the mid to upper 60s.

Sunday, an isolated shower is possible in the early morning hours but the rest of the day should remain dry and clear as a fresh round of drier air moves in. Highs in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Monday, a few clouds but otherwise mostly sunny. We’ll start off a bit milder in the upper 40s, but there will still be a noticeable chill to the air. We will warm up into the low to mid 70s, the first day in the 70s for a few days at this point for many of us.

Tuesday, a few showers along a weak cold front look likely during the daytime. Not everyone will see rain, but a few will get a quick spritz. A shift to more southerly winds will spring us into the mid-70s.

In the extended forecast, we start to dry out a bit more and keep temperatures a bit closer to average in the low 70s and the upper 60s. High pressure will be in control, so that also means we’ll see some sun too!

As we transition into fall, our weather becomes a bit messy with big temperature swings and some active weather. Make sure you and your family have a plan in place for what to do when severe weather strikes. One of the most important parts of that plan is having multiple ways to receive weather alerts and warnings. Two great ways to get them are having the StormTracker 59 app downloaded and purchasing an NOAA Weather Radio for your home and on the go.
